‘Tis the Season to Shop Local: Where to Find the Best Gifts in Waikiki


At Embassy Suites by Hilton Waikiki Beach Walk, we are in the heart of Waikiki which means you are close to the best shopping, dining, and entertainment, including the world-famous Waikiki Beach Walk. With the holiday shopping season in full swing, we invite you to take a break from the beach to browse the unique boutiques, one-of-a-kind stores and weekly farmers' market at this outdoor promenade. You'll feel good about stocking up on souvenirs and crossing off your holiday gift list while supporting the local economy. Here are some of our favorite small-business hot spots, all located steps from the hotel. 

Blue Ginger
Selling vibrant, comfortable resort wear in Hawai‘i for over 30 years, Blue Ginger is the place to get matching aloha print outfits for the whole family. Think: holiday card photos!
